Today the Ostankino TV tower is
The 15th tallest building in the world, but at the time of its construction it had no equal to all Europe.
Construction began in the summer of 1960, even before the final approval of the project.
Now the tower is planned to be completed
up to 560 m — then it will regain the title of the tallest TV tower in the world.
The conical base of the structure rests on 10 poles; the average diameter between the leg supports is 65 meters.
The 540-meter building resembled an inverted lily flower on the thick stem — it was this silhouette that was taken as the basis of the architect
N.V. Nikitin.
The Ostankino tower became an embodiment of the most daring ideas of Soviet designers and architects.

MELNIKOV
HOUSE-MUSEUM
World-famous monument of Soviet avant-garde architecture in architecture. It was built in 1927-1929.
Since the end of 2014, the house museum has been open for visitors. The visit is organized by preliminary registration, with excursion groups.
The house project was approved on June 19 1927 as an experimental structure on «Melnikov system», the idea which consisted in prohibition of round building for massive housing.
1929
The volumetric composition of the house consists of two vertical cylinders of the same diameter, which are of different heights and cut into each other by a third of the radius, thus forming an unusual shape of the plan in the form of the number "8".
The side walls of the front cylinder are practically blank - only on the first floor are several hexagonal windows, and one octagonal window is arranged on the west side at the level of the second floor. The side walls of the front cylinder are practically blank, with only the first floor having several hexagonal windows.

NOVGOROD
DRAMA THEATER
The first stationary theater opened in 1825. Since 1853 the theater in Novgorod became permanent.
In 1987, the theater got a new building, built under the direction of the architect V.A. Somov GIPROTEATER.
The theater building became one of the most interesting and controversial buildings in the Soviet modernism style in Velikiy Novgorod. The building was built almost 10 years.
1825
The unusual shape of the building is reminiscent of a ship and significantly different from the surrounding development of Novgorod.
The main facade of the theater overlooks the pier of the Volkhov River, but from Alexander Nevsky embankment there is a more interesting view on the building.
The two cylindrical towers on the sides  of the theater were supposed to play the role of water towers for acting fountains. But the fountains were never launched.
